The strike will force the closure of all schools. The union has not provided a date for the conclusion of its strike. State law allows the teachers to strike so long as the last day of school is no later than June 15, 2018. As a result, the strike could be as short as one day or last until the end of September. The union is only required to give 24 hours notice when it decides to end its strike. Students will be required to make up all strike days. Teachers receive their full yearly salary regardless of the length of the strike under Pennsylvania law.
